Photography for the Sportsman Naturalist

Nature volume 71, pages 483484 (23 March 1905) | Download Citation



ON several previous occasions we have had the pleasure of noticing some of the admirable volumes belonging to that series of the “Sportsman's Library” which deals exclusively with the various animals constituting the sportsman's quarry. In the volume now before us we have, on the other hand, one of a second series devoted to different aspects of sports and matters connected therewith. In regarding practical photography as an essential element in the education and outfit of every modern sportsman who desires to be something more than a mere slayer of game, the editor has undoubtedly been well advised; and he also has been exceptionally fortunate in securing the services of an expert with the experience and reputation of Mr. Brownell to make known to the beginner the mysteries of the camera and the technique of outdoor animal photography. If the reader is careful to bear in mind that when the author refers to “our animals” he means the members of the North American and not of the British fauna, the book will, we venture to think, prove as acceptable to sportsmen and field-naturalists on this side of the Atlantic as to the countrymen of the author; and if this turn out to be the case, a wide circulation would seem to be assured.
